Crisis Skylight South Yorkshire was an outreach service that provided expert help to find safe housing, opportunities to gain new skills and wellbeing advice through combined support, face-to-face, and over the phone.
Amy Williamson the Director of The Wonder Agency contacted Crisis on behalf of Hug At Home, who are a British manufacturer based in Yorkshire. Hug at Home had woven blankets they wanted to donate to our Crisis members to help the homeless and vulnerable over the winter months. Crisis supports our members across the South Yorkshire area and the blankets were a very welcome donation. We have distributed the blankets to our members, those who are already in accommodation and those who have just moved into a property and everyone was very thankful and appreciative of the gift.
Russell who is one of our members at Skylight South Yorkshire has been working with our arts tutor Gill on a variety of Polymer Clay projects that go towards his QEL vocational qualification. He has been using this highly coloured modelling material that you oven bake for all his projects.
Our volunteers support us in our goal to end homelessness by encouraging and motivating members in our classes and helping them to build confidence, supporting our members to manage and sustain their tenancy or helping behind the scenes to ensure our team can do their job. Our volunteers time matters and they are an inspiration to all of us. Even this photo was taken by a volunteer.
We often have volunteer roles as classroom assistants, administrators and more.
Together with homeless people and our supporters, we've achieved real change.
